Post spans will vary depending on job site conditions. Never span more than 8 ft. on-center between railing posts. Spans longer than 12 ft. in length will require reduced post spans. 3 in. posts are required to reach 6' and 8 ft. lengths. 2 in. posts must be set in-line to panel.

Do not install post caps and vinyl post base covers until railing assembly is completed. 3" posts are required at all transitions. 2 in. posts may not be used to start/end a run or to form a corner. The top snap covers should snap firmly onto the aluminum railing channels.

Do not use a hammer. The top rails will snap by applying pressure from one end to the other. If you’re having issues snapping on the covers, check the clips to ensure that they are bottomed out into the aluminum railing channels. Foot Blocks must be installed BEFORE installing Top Rail Snaps.
